Winner
Adam Ferrara, Rutledge Wood and Tanner Foust, Top Gear – BBC Worldwide Productions
No matter where their journeys or challenges take them—Iceland, Alaska, the South or the Pacific—Adam Ferrara, Tanner Foust, and Rutledge Wood entertain while testing the limits of the world’s most prestigious cars. Meanwhile, the trois sometimes push each other to the limits as well while trying to one-up each other with their automotive antics. These 3 are more than just hosts: they really care about cars. And what they can do. Or jump. Or roll through. And they have implacable chemistry that shows on screen.
